Overhead Railcar Shaker

Decrease Open-Top Hopper Railcar Unloading Times

NAVCO Overhead Railcar Shakers excel at decreasing railcar unloading times. The shaker creates a vibration response in the railcar that eliminates rat holes and bridging in tough material. From Coal to Coke to Aggregates to Asphalt, the NAVCO Overhead Railcar Shaker keeps your material flowing.

Safely Eliminate Costly Carryback

Completely empty railcars and stop incurring costly carryback charges. Overhead Railcar Shakers utilize vibration to remove stubborn stuck material. This also increases personnel safety, as employees no longer need to enter the railcar to manually scrape the remaining material.
